1. Keep your routine meals. Try to eat at roughly the same time each day, if not two or five times a day. For more information, go to our eating habits section.
   2. Go reduced fat. Choose reduced fat versions of foods such as dairy products, spreads and salad dressings where you can. Use them sparingly as some can still be high in fat. For more information, visit our Hidden Calories.
   3. Walk off the weight. 10,000 steps (about 60-90 minutes of moderate activity) each day. You can use a pedometer to count steps. You can interrupt your walk on the day. For more information, visit our section on.
   4. Bring a healthy snack. If you snack, choose a healthy option such as fresh fruit or low calorie yogurts instead of chocolate or crisps. For more information, visit our section for ideas for healthy meals.
   5. Look at the labels. Be careful about food claims. Check the fat and sugar on food labels when buying and preparing food. For more information, visit our attention to the section labels.
   6. Watch your portions. Do not store food on your plate heap (except vegetables). Think twice before having second helpings. For more information, visit our section Portion Caution.
   7. Up on your feet. Divide your time sitting. Stand up for ten minutes every hour. For more information, go to our Keep on Moving section.
   8. Think about your drinks. Drink water or sugar free squash. Unsweetened fruit juice contains natural sugar so limit it to 1 glass per day (200 ml / 1 / 3 liter). Alcohol is high in calories, try to limit the amount you drink. For more information, visit our Hidden Calories.
   9. Concentrate on your food. Slow down. Do not eat on the go or watching television. Eat at the table if possible. For more information, go to our eating habits section.
  10. Do not forget your 5 a day. Eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day (400 g in total). For more information, go to our five a section Day.
